Emergency authorities in Tennessee say the death toll from weekend flooding has risen with the discovery of a man's body in a field in the west of the state.
The Jackson Sun says the man was swept away Sunday while walking on a road. Carol Fite of the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency confirmed that another body was found.
The state's flood death toll stands at 18. A tornado in western Tennessee also killed another person at the weekend. The water is slowly receding in Nashville, where nine of the deaths and most of the damage occurred.
